Last week we had a bright calm day with lots of Oystercatchers, Ringed Plovers and Sanderling along the beach.
Today's visit found the strong winds which gave wonderful views of this hovering Kestrel. There were only a few Oystercatchers and Sanderling, but flocks of Knot and Ringed Plovers instead. The Common Scoters and Long Tailed Ducks seemed to be enjoying the rough seas off shore too.
Lets enjoy the winter sunshine while we can.
